Step Four: If you are a merchant in Western Newfoundland, please sign up to carry our Mountain Troll Tokens.  These will be part of a contest during the Mountain Troll Festival, but will become available in May for you to hide in plain sight somewhere on your premises. When visitors find the trolls in your store, you must stamp them and send them back to us for both you and the finder to be entered into a draw!

If you are a shopper or visitor to one of the lovely craft or gift shops in Western Newfoundland that finds a Mountain Troll Token, bring it to the cashier, have it stamped and write down the code on the back.  Email us the code to receive your Troll Token Points or stop by one of our TECH TENTS during a LARP event with a list of codes and we will enter them for you.
